Admin / Weyrlingmaster
This week, Headwoman Lery chivvied the candidates to the bare rock that would eventually be part of the Sands, but for now would serve as an observation area for the visitors.  It was the first chance the candidates had to see all of the eggs, which had only just been retrieved from their hiding places.

"Once you step out on those Sands on the day of Hatching, there's no turning back.  You'll either walk off those Sands, or be carried off, and it all depends on how you respond to the hatchlings.  Normally, it would also depend on how you treat the clutchmother, but that's not something you'll have to be concerned with this time.  Your entrance is right over there," she pointed to a seemingly tiny doorway not far from the eggs.  "Can anyone tell me what the first thing is that you'll do when you step out on those Sands?"  She paused, waiting for one of the candidates to respond.

"Now, there are some things you'll have to do immediately before going out on the Sands.  There are two rooms to either side of that entrance, one for boys and one for girls.  In them are tubs of water and a bunch of towels, as well as a closet full of candidate robes and boots; it is extremely important that you wear those clothes, both to help us identify you as candidates as you come off the Sands, and also because those clothes are specifically designed to help protect you from the heat on the Sands."  She instructed the candidates to step out a couple of paces onto the Sands and run their hands through the grains to see how hot it was.  "Over here, it's not as hot as it is where the sand is deeper; we've opened some vents under those sands to keep them heated, and the sand absorbs the heat very well, and as we fill this chamber more, we'll open more vents.  As soon as the dragons start humming, you'll be sent to these rooms to clean up and dress before going onto the Sands.

"Now, everyone tell me what you already know about the hatchlings' behaviors in the time immediately after Hatching."

Lesson will continue when all candidates have posted.
